From small beginnings with the single ship the CELTIC STAR, the Seatruck Dublin services have gone from strength to strength. To give an idea: Back in October 2007 Seatruck moved just over 3,000 units of freight from Dublin. Ten years later: 21,000 units. Seatruck Ferries are now one of the largest freight movers in the port.
In the busy midweek period Seatruck now operate 4 daily services to Liverpool and a daily service to Heysham. Seatruck also operate on the popular Warrenpoint – Heysham route.
With driver shortages continuing, Seatruck are expecting an ongoing switch to unaccompanied trailer movements.
In December, a new loading ramp will be installed in the Port of Heysham, which is now directly linked to the motorway network via the new M6 Link.
Seatruck are working closely with the relevant authorities in Northern Ireland on the Newry Southern Relief Road project, which will link Warrenpoint Harbour directly to the Belfast – Dublin motorway.
